I Have A Hunch Dma Isn't Enabled.


Recommended Posts

My computer has been running painfully slow lately, especially anytime I have to access the hard-drive. About the time this loss of perforamnce started a window came up in my ati-tv screen saying DMA was not enabled for my hard-drive which would cause significant performance loss. I don't know what caused this lack of dma, but i need it back! Moving files from one place to another is killing me (it takes SOO long!). I have a 100gb WD with a 2mb cache. I know its slow, but it is normally much faster than it is now, something is definately causing it to run slower than normal.


I have already made sure the "dma, if available" is checked on my hard-drive in the device manager, and I have checked my bios up and down for something I may have turned off on accident. Any ideas what is causing this?
